There is a lot of confusion about vision correction. The most common procedure is LASIK (laser assisted in-situ keratomileusis). It is designed to reduce or eliminate glasses or contact lenses for NEARSIGHTED, FARSIGHTED OR ASTIGMATIC eyes. Your best bet is calling our office and scheduling a FREE screening to determine if LASIK or one of the other procedures we offer would be best for you. Call 702-362-3900.

In more detail: the procedure uses either a laser or microkeratome to create a flap which is lifted and the excimer laser is applied to the eye gently sculpting the cornea with our “cool” laser thus changing the shape of the eye and changing the prescription. The procedure is done in the safety of our Surgery Center and takes only 10 minutes! You will be offered medicine to help you relax but there is generally very little discomfort. We use no needles and with our technique the microkeratome is disposable so it only touches your eye! Patients generally notice an improvement minutes after surgery and after their nap see quite well and virtually all patients can drive to their follow up appoitment the next morning. Come in the office for your FREE screening and we can show you a great video and address all your concerns and walk you through the process. We will act as your personal VIP host because we understand you and your concerns. We have affordable financing and if there is a better procedure for you, we will offer that as well because we are more that just a LASIK Center. We are medical doctors and are skilled and trained to care for virtually all eye condidtions, from glasses and contact lenses to complicated prescriptions.
